The Plain Choice
As I was reading, I expected the author to share her spiritual awakening. Sherry does get baptized and has a heartfelt conversion to her faith. However, she believes in the maxim "God does for those who do for themselves". This really bothered me because many people think this is a Biblical passage, but it is not. It is also not based on the teachings of the Bible. It is a man-made, man enforced phrase.
I also did not understand why Sherry continued to move around and piecemeal her belief system based on her life experiences, instead of the Bible. I struggled to even understand why she became Amish.
Zondervan provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
